Venues into the future; the future of Contact Information

The definition and very nature of contact information is changing.

Why is this important? If you are not able to connect with people, you cannot sell to them, you cannot recruit them, you cannot market to them. As I talked about in the video intro, things are changing. If there was a contact information historian, it would be me.

What gets me irritated is when something gets reported as the "next best thing", when in reality, it is simply, the… Continue

I’m sorry; you’re just interviewing me wrong

Years ago I had an interesting interview experience. It was very early in my career and the guy who was going to hire me asked, "What's two plus two?"

I hesitated, but only for a millisecond trying in that brief moment to figure out why he had asked. Then, almost in a 'what kind of idiot do you think I am' tone I replied "Four". Since he did not respond or nod right away I added, "Unless this is the kind of place where if you say it's five, then it's five. Or if the customer says… Continue

My Entrepreneurial Journey.

Gaurav Mittal is from a service-class family, and it was probably this that stirred in him the passion to live life differently and see things from a perspective different from others. It was while pursuing his BTech at KNIT in Sultanpur, seeing eminent businessmen visit as guest speakers, that Gaurav realised he wanted to become an entrepreneur too. His next obvious step was doing MBA, which he did undertake with specialisation in finance and international marketing at Narsee Monjee… Continue

How to create a presentation about yourself

Let’s face it, there is too much to read in today’s workplace. Black lettering on white background has led to a sort of fatigue which results in painfully short attention spans. How do you get your profile to stand out in this environment? The answer is to use the audio-visual medium. The truth is that not many of us have been able to figure this medium out; talking about ourselves in anything other than a resume becomes a tad difficult. Here’s a ready-reckoner:

What is the compensation you can expect as a consultant?

New consultants often are faced with the uncertainty of the amount of compensation that they can expect as a consultant: not getting a standard paycheck at the end of the month does represent a significant shift in approach to work. The key advantage of being a consultant over an employee, from a compensation standpoint is that you can work for more than one client at a time, while as an employee it is not feasible (and probably illegal) to expect to deliver to more than one employer. The fact… Continue

Where does ambition come from? My 15 year old daughter seems to lack all drive & I don't get it! Of course they say, that's just teens, but I swear I think she's intentionally trying to be less motivated. "I don't need HS, I just want to be a hair cutter!" Are you kidding, wow, we've really set the bar high. How can her mom be a teacher & dad, bust his hump building his own business & yet her goal is to strive to cut hair? Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with cutting… Continue

The Hardest Placement in Your Life

Making placements is hard and recruiters always have various theories for their anticipated success or failure on any given position search. Most typically it begins with such things as their depth of knowledge of the company, the hiring process, position requirements, their knowledge of the available talent pool, experience working with the hiring official and the preferred personality traits of the team in addition to many other moving parts. However, the hardest placement that you’re ever… Continue

No War for Talent

After attending ERE last week, I'm convinced that there will never be another "war for talent".

Having lived through the first war for talent of the mid to late 90's during the boom, I can tell you that we were hiring as fast and as furious as possible. Companies were offering 6 month leases on Ferrari's as signing bonuses and the "war" was on. As employers, we literally battled at offer time against one another - upping the ante' until one of us blinked and lost the… Continue

Serena Williams Episode during US Open; Talent vs. Values

It was US Open 2009 in Flushing Meadows a couple of weeks ago when I got to see Serena Williams yell and scream at the lines umpire for calling a foot fault. Serena threatened the lines umpire with profanity laced tirade waving her racquet and was eventually thrown out of the US Open for her behavior leaving Kim Clijsters to not only win the semis but also the finals against Wozniacki. What left me aghast was the attitude of a very talented world… Continue

How to Ask Illegal Interview Questions

These days everything is illegal. Asking simple interview questions can easily lead to a lawsuit. I have come up with a workaround to risky interview questions.

Let’s start with the basics.

Your company is full of geezers. Hiring young Gen-Y whipper snappers is a headache since they feel entitled to telecommuting, fresh water and clean bathrooms.

Asking “How old are you?” is age discrimination.

Instead ask this, “How old were you when you… Continue

IF this is you...

Recently a candidate I know through my volunteer work told me she asked the interviewer, "How long have you been working here?" This individual was simply being friendly, trying to engage the recruiter in conversation to understand the corporate culture and the interviewer. The recruiter responded, "I'm the interviewer. I'm the one asking the questions!" This individual was shocked, saddened and disheartened as s/he wanted the job and had heard wonderful comments from others about the company.… Continue
